Speaking too soon

After all the good news with Laura last night, there's bad news this morning. First, after a shift change at the county the doctor decided to not release Laura to my friend and his wife, but to keep her until a bed opened up at a hospital in her home county. Then, the decision to release Laura to her mother.

This is the worst of outcomes for Laura. She'd rather be in the hospital than with her mother. Authorities were repeatedly and consistantly told that she's a suicide risk if she's with her mother.

The strategy now is for Laura to take every opportunity to leave her mother's and tell authorities that she is not safe and wants to be put into foster care.

Sigh. She's a bright girl and I hope that things do work out for her. We'll be exploring options for helping out.
